PowerTip: Capture the output of a Linux application in PowerShell
Summary: Use the built-in features of PowerShell to obtain data produced by a Linux application.
Can I run a Linux application like ls and capture its output in PowerShell?
You certainly can! It’s no different from when you normally grab output from any other command in Windows. To grab the output of the ls command, for example, just assign it to a PowerShell object as you normally would.
The captured output will be all text, and you can run standard methods, Search-String and regular expressions against it.
